Cancellation of lectures and other events

In the light of current government advice all lectures and other events organised by the Society and its special interest Sections and due to take place during April and May have been cancelled.  Similar activities organised by organisations affiliated to the Society and therefore shown in the Society's published programme for the current year may also have been cancelled.  Anyone planning to attend such activities is advised to check with the local society or other organisation.

New PAS online guide to buckles

  • Posted On: 11 June 2018

The Portable Antiquities Scheme has published an online guide to buckles - Roman to eighteenth-century.


The differing forms of late Roman and early Anglo-Saxon belt buckles have provided much material for discussion in recent decades, with some forms characteristic of (eg.) late antique administrators and military men (women too?), and with (eg.) triangular buckle plates from prestigious Anglo-Saxon burials.

This is a basic guide and guidance on terms and references to standard works are given.
